Re: The importance of being Solid

Broz, this thread has been good reading. I do use your technique, it works for me
and the icing on the cake, for my self any ways, is the Pod Locker used to put the
lock on my bi-pod.

Good posts!

Thank you Sir, and GREAT POINT!!!!!!!!! I used the pod lock too, It is a very inexpensive way to add stability.

Re: The importance of being Solid

Let it be know, that I witnessed Broz shooting off of a shooting mat. He did the number on the 1k target too!!!! To be completely forthright the bipod was in the gravel..

Broz...... Just tweekin' ya a bit.

Sure was great day of shooting. I really enjoyed meeting you and the others.

You have put a ton of effort into that range.

It's the best I've shot at.

Broz could tell us a tale of shooting prairie dogs at that range with his .243 and I'd never question it for a second.

He's amongst the most knowledgeable and experienced long range guys around.

Roy, it was an honor to finally meet up with you. We must shoot again. As far as the mat goes, well,,,,it done my heart good to see you get the bipod off the mat and in the gravel. 1000 yards for your rifle is not much of a challenge, you have a real beast there. You and Kirby didn't leave anything out, she is a shooter. Thank You for letting me take her for a test drive. That was mighty nice of you with the price of fuel these days.

Jeff

The weak point in my technique has usually been supporting the butt of the rifle. The bags I've tried with the exception of one, are too soft, too small or just the wrong shape or size. Doesn't matter how tight the bag is held there is still some movement - perhaps creep would be a better term. The one bag I do like is an old leather benchrest bag I filled tightly with a mixture of #8 lead shot and used corn tumbling media; still way too heavy to carry in the field while hunting or practicing. Some of my other bags are light but have a density resembling a baggie full of jello. In a word, useless.

I've also tried using plastic ammo boxes and blocks of wood. These are perfect when they are the correct size but can be a bunch of trouble when they are not.

Might I ask what rear bag you are using? Do you know what it is filled with and is it filled to the max or is there some space left.
FWIW I purchased 2 yards of MARPAT nylon material Forget what its called exactly has sort of a gortex feel but is MUCH thicker. I have my wife make my bags. She makes them in a rectangle pattern. They are filled with plastic egg shaped pellets you get from the craft store. Tension is adjusted by squeezing the bag and using a different side get you in the ball park for height. Takes a special needle and a pretty serious sowing machine.
